Your Common Questions

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF ENDOMETRIOSIS?

Everyone’s experience of endometriosis will be different and symptoms can vary in intensity. It is also important to remember that not everyone with endometriosis will experience symptoms.  Debilitating period pain is not normal and should not be ignored. 

 

The classic symptoms of endometriosis include: 

 

  • Painful Menstruation (dysmenorrhea)
  • Pelvic Pain (that radiates down the legs or up the back)
  • Pain Intercourse (dyspareunia)
  • Bowel Problems (bloating, constipation, painful bowel movements)
  • Fatigue
  • Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
  • Abnormal Menstrual Bleeding
  • Painful Urination
  • Infertility
IS THERE A CURE FOR ENDOMETRIOSIS?

Currently, there is no cure for endometriosis. However, it is treatable and many people manage their symptoms with a mix of long-term treatments.

WILL I BE ABLE TO GET PREGNANT?

It is believed that 30-40% of women with endometriosis may struggle to conceive. This suggests that 60-70% of people will have no issues. If fertility is a top priority for you, please share your symptoms with your doctor so that you may work together to develop the best treatment plan for you.
